STAN Buckles’ new tattoo business can remove as well as add artwork to your
Stan believes he is the first person to offer laser tattoo removal in the Bury St Edmunds area, at his new shop in St Andrew’s Street North, near The Grapes pub.
Although his shop, Tattoo Junction is new, he has 18 years’ experience and owned Freedom Tattooz in Ipswich for 17 years.
“Knowing the person is experienced does give that confidence,” he said.
“I’ve got a big portfolio built up over the years so people can see what I’ve done. I’ve won one or two rewards.”
He says laser removal and ‘cover ups’, where they tattoo over an existing design are sometimes because people want the names of ex-partners removed but often it is because tastes have changed.
The level of artistic tattooing has also greatly improved over the years.
Stan will be working with another qualified tattooist and an apprentice and his work can be seen at www.myspace.com/freedom_tattooz
